    All natural extermely potent detergent for all things white:
    Mix 1/2 white vinegar with 1/2 water in a bucket and soak a few (extraordinary) soap nuts in it. The vinegar will make your horse smell a bit funky, but it not only cleans amazingly well, it helps keep the flies off too.

    Simply sponge it on to a dry horse and scub him down then give him a good rinse. You can use this on just about anything white with no worries of harmful toxins or chemicals!

    I learned this from someone on here, GOOP works wonders on the mane and tail. I also use it on places that get greasy build up.

    Yes goop is awesome if applied correctly. It does strip all the oil though so its not something to be done too often as it will damage/dry the coat.

    Masatian's right. I've used that on our white race horses.

    Hahaha I just crank up the elbow grease and clean my curry out every 10 minutes. I brush up for a good hour when I want him to shine.. and he does! But man you should see what he looks like when I grab him for pasture. I do shampoo once every 2 weeks to get all the sweat off and make him smell fresh (the flies usually are less apparent after he bathes than when he rolls in muck)

    He also loves baths so it's a nice treat :) And a good workout for me!

    I use Hand Goop. The stuff people use to get oil and grease off their hands. You can find it in automotive at walmart for $2 a thing. I use it very sparingly. You can see the actual dirt coming off the coat. And then I finish with Dawn dish soap. Gets my horses white nice and white!

    For a particularly stubborn spot cover the area with baby powder and rub it in. Then take a baby wipe and rub it off. Works on anything but rust stains. (halter metal on the cheek not the best show prep day ever)

    I own 3 grey horses, a palomino, and I had a paint:)
    I know how hard it is to get "white"!!!

    I have used just about every thing out their...Quick Silver, Main and Tail, you name it.

    Vetrolin is the way to go!!
    1.Wet down with a shower sprayer
    2.Scrub whole coat with soft brush and vetrolin shampoo
    3.Rub through mane and tail, scrub the scalp and hair vigorously with brush and finger tips.
    4.Let sit for 15 minutes
    5.Slowly rinse off, using the shower sprayer and brush.
    6.Finish with vetrolin conditioner, let set for a bit then rinse!:)

    White N' Bright shampoo by Farnam Purple Magic in a Bottle.

    Works on my White horse(with a little bit of chestnut on her) and on my mud magnet pony's mane and tail.

    Chalk! I have a grey and when all else fails, chalk is really useful, especially for a quick touch up at shows etc! :)
